Staff Accommodation Plan Opposed

Plans by the Powerscourt Hotel and Spa in Co Wicklow to develop a new staff accommodation complex have resulted in objections from a company linked to the Slazenger family – owners of the Powerscourt Estate.

The company, Scalaheen Limited, retained planning consultant Tom Phillips + Associates to file an observation, seeking the application be refused. The filing claimed the company behind the application, Wicklow Hotel Partnership, did not have “sufficient legal interest”.
